Aslan Is On The Move

Our church meets in a movie theater, which means it is in a bit of a unique situation at certain points. For instance, in the past, we were able to get an advance screening of The Passion of the Christ; once again, we managed to get an advance screening of another “Christian-themed” movie: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The showing is tonight at 7pm and I will be attending with Aron and Heather as well as my nuclear family, including my brother’s brand new fiance(!).
I’ve been looking forward to this movie for a long time and I’m really hoping it doesn’t let me down. From what I’ve read, the producers at Disney were emphatic about making it more Harry Potter/LotR-like, meaning that several additional scenes have been added that never appeared in the book. As long as it stays true to the overall story, I think I will be able to overlook it.
I’ll post my reaction/review tonight if I get a chance, tomorrow if I don’t.
Also, to keep yourselves amused in the meantime, give a listen to Marty Moss-Coane’s Radio Times (the show that Terry Gross wishes she could produce. You hear that, NPR? Dump Gross, promote Moss-Coane!) from today’s second hour, where she interviews an author and a playwright/author who have specialized in studying and adapting C.S. Lewis’ works in the past. Very interesting stuff.
